Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!!
Lets Celebrate by eating green eggs and ham!!!

My sister Jeri and I went to Sams on Saturday. While we were there we of course had to look at everything, so we came to the book isle and found a whole section to Dr. Seuss.
 She found the Green Eggs and Ham book and she made me recite it... since I can still do that almost from memory! She is almost 18 but I can still remember her along with Gabby and Mary running in the room with the book and asking me for the like millionth time to read it... So I got very well versed in Dr. Seussism's :) Although I still had to get her to tell me a couple words, I remembered most of it!! ~ Umm not sure if its really awesome or totally weird that I can still recite the wonderful world of Seuss!??? WhatEVER... Yes It is way awesome!  Ha ha so anyway here we were in the middle of the isle and I was still reciting away and Jeri was almost doubled over in laughter... Umm Shani cant read a childrens book without dramatic expressions and crazy voices to go along with it . So here I am trying to keep it down to a whisper  ~ then shaking my head and saying in a rather loud whisper... "That Sam I am, That Sam I am, I do not like that Sam I am!"  Okay OKay so I was really born to be a Storybook Reteller kind of Person! Do they even pay people to do that? LOL
Any other person would be embarrassed but we had so much fun! Whoever said that reading was fundamental definatly knew what they were saying! The beginning of the word says "fun" LOL .....

 So on this day whether you want to wear crazy colors, eat green eggs and ham or get all of your antique collection of Dr. Seuss books out of the closet, sit in the floor and read them all over again. Remember to live life! Enjoy it! Dont take things too seriously unless it is the concerning the Lord.
Open up love someone! Take time to smell the flowers along the path where you walk everyday!
